Happy National Peanut Butter day! Celebrate with Sweet Peanut butter bread

My daughter, Naomi, is the inspiration behind this bread!  She asked me to make peanut butter bread.  She wanted it to be just like my banana bread, minus the bananas and add peanut butter.  It was a huge hit!! Yeah!

Sweet Peanut Butter Bread

  • 2 c. flour ( 1 1/2 c. white 1/2 c whole wheat)
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 c. sugar (1/2 c. white & 1/2 c. brown sugar) plus 1/4 c to top before baking
  • 1 c. peanut butter (1/2 smooth & 1/2 chunky)
  • 1/4 c. Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil (GIVEAWAY http://bit.ly/b1WpEe)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. POM juice
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 c. peanut butter chips
  • 1 c. chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat Oven 350. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar.  Add in peanut butter and melted coconut oil.  Just get it mixed around. It will look dry.  In a separate bowl mix together eggs, milk, POM juice, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon.  Add wet mix to dry mix.  Quickly mix together.  Add in peanut butter chips (and optional chocolate chips).

Pour evenly into greasted, 2 bread baking pans.  Top with 1/4 c. brown sugar and 1 T chips.

Bake 40 min and check to see if tester is 80% clear. If not bake another 5 min or so.  You want the tester to be almost clear.  I was glad that I pulled it out at 45 min.  You do not want to over bake.  It will get dry!

Serve with milk!

Very yummy!

NOTES- You do not need to follow this recipe 100%.  Use more or less flour combination, sugar combonation and use juice of your choice.  I added the juice thinking that it needed something sweet added. The POM juice was perfect! The coconut oil (Giveaway 32 oz Gold Label Coconut Oil) can be substituted for melted butter.
